Festival de Tenerife is displaying a homage to Pedro Lezcano in the shape of a multidisciplinary show outside Auditorio de Tenerife. La maleta [The suitcase], a coproduction of Canarian companies Teatro KDO (Tenerife) and Fireworks (Gran Canaria), directed by José Pedro Hernández, is performing on Saturday, 10th at 8:30 pm. Admission is free.

The show, which is based on the homonymous poem by Pedro Lezcano, one of the most relevant intellectuals in the 20th century, was written by playwrights Enrique and Yeray Bazo. The scenography, a giant suitcase that changes throughout the show to recreate different spaces, has been designed by Basque sculptor resident in Tenerife Julio Nieto. Costumes are inspired by circus and steampunk styles and are designed by José Castro.

Actress and assistant director Yanely Hernández, is part of the cast together with Baltasar Isla (El exiliado), Francis Lorenzo (El corredor), Esther Martínez (Izmir), Juan Carlos Baeza (Franz), Daniel Sanginés (Braulio), Jesús Raya and Marcos García (Los vigilantes) and Francisco Vera (El desplazado).

In this visual framework, seven characters who are forced to migrate, tell their stories in a show that brings together theatre, dance, acrobatics and music. The search for freedom travels through this great suitcase that sees a striking evolution while offering a most original mise en scène.
